And to satisfy them that I had Money enough to be as good as my Word, I took three Broad Pieces and three Shillings out of my Pocket.</p>
<p>Brockway said, as how she supposed it was not right Gold, and so she took a Piece to look upon it, whereas she said it was very good, and gave it me again; and by and by she snatches all the Money out of my Hand, and put into her Bosom, and said, You shall never see it again. I'll keep it, to learn you more Wit;, that another time you may know an honest Woman a Whore; and then Gardner ran round the Table to her, with a Design, as I supposed, to take the Money from her; but I kept my Eye upon them all the while as well as I could, and rang the Bell; and when the Drawer came in, I sent him for a Constable.</p>
<p>The Drawer thus deposed: This Man and the Prisoners coming to our House, I shew'd them into a Ground Room, opposite to the Bar; where they had three Pints of Mountain: After which, upon hearing the Bell, I stept in, and Brockway presently threw down three Shillings, and said, There is your Money, Drawer; but the Man said, he was robbed, and desired me to fetch a Constable, which I did.</p>
<p>The Maid deposed, that she undress'd the two Women, and search'd them in every Part, but - but found no Money about them. The Prisoners then made their Defence: This Man took us to the Tavern, and offered us a Crown apiece to strip ourselves naked, and stew him Postures. He gave Mary Gardner Money to fetch a Penny-worth of Rods, for him to whip us a-cross the Room, and make us good Girls; and then for us to whip him to make him a good Boy: But we told him it was neither a proper Time nor Place for any such thing, for it was Sunday Night, and others might over-look us in the Room we were in, tho' the Curtains were drawn. He bid us look to it; for it should be worse for us, if we would not do as he would have us; and so he called the Drawer, and said, we had got his Money. The Jury

My Wife coming home, presently mist the Tankard; and wondring the Maid carry'd so long, she sent one to see for her; but she was not to be found. This increased our Suspicion; and upon farther Search, we mist the other Goods in the Indictment. We saw no more of her till the 10th of this Month, when she was taken at the Angel in Hammer Smith, with my Wife's Stays upon her, and confess'd the whole Charge, and where she had disposed of the Goods; some of which we found according to her Direction; but the Goldsmith to whom she said she sold the Tankard for 45 s. deny'd that he ever had it.

I had then thirteen Guineas in my Pocket; she stopt me, whipt her Hand into my Breeches, and when she took it out again, I mist six Guineas: I called the Watch, who took her to the Watch-house. - She at first deny'd she had it, and no body searched her; but afterwards confess'd it.</p>
<p>The Constable thus deposed: My Watchman brought the Prosecutor, with the Prisoner and another Woman, before me. The Prosecutor said they had both pickt his Pocket; but fix'd the Charge upon the Prisoner. - (She has been brought to our Watch house for a Street-Walker before now.) - She deny'd the Matter; and I talk'd of searching her; but the Prosecutor said it would signify nothing, for he did not question but that she had convey'd it away. That Morning we carry'd her before my Lord Mayor; after which, we went into the Vine in Bell-Court in Foster-Lane, and there she confess'd that she had the Guineas in her Mouth all the time that she was in the Watch house.</p>
<p>The Prisoner thus made her Defence: As I was going up Flower-de-Luce Court, I saw a Man and a Woman a jostling together against the Wall, and presently the Man said, You Bitch, you have pickt my Pocket; and seeing me, he ran after me, and said I was a Confederate, and so let the other Woman go.

<p>Rebecca Harvison thus deposed: I and this Child of mine being at a Neighbour's House, in Church-Lane, near S. Giles's Church, where the Prisoner lodges, he came in about Seven at Night, took the Child in his Arms, and fell a kissing her. The Child, you may see, is a Dwarf, and an Idiot; and what makes the Misfortune the greater, she wants the Use of her Limbs so much, that she is forced to be carried like an Infant. We afterwards went to an Alehouse, where we left the Prisoner and the Child, and went a little farther: And when we came back, we heard that the Prisoner had taken the Child out with him; but he soon brought her home again, and went away. Then I undress'd her to put her to Bed, and found she was ruin'd, bloody, in a frightful Condition, and, by all Circumstances, had been ravish'd. The next day, the Prisoner confess'd to me, that it was he that did it, but said he was sorry for it, and would make it up; and beg'd me not to send him to Newgate, for that would ruin him. In two or three Weeks after, we found that the Child had the Foul Disease.</p>

<p>- Cox, a Surgeon, in behalf of the Prisoner, thus deposed: Being inform'd that the Child had received the Foul Disease, I search'd the Prisoner very strictly in Newgate, on the 17th Day after the Fact was committed, and I found not the least Sign of his having had such a Distemper upon him. Now, I think, a Man could hardly be so perfectly cured in so short a time. I own there may be a Possibility of it, in a very slight Infection; or if the Patient had been under Cure before, and was almost well, at the time that the Fact was committed.</p>

I and my Wife look'd for it diligently, but all to no purpose. She came again in a few days, and then we lost a Pair of Silk Stocking off the Back of a Chair. This gave us a strong Suspicion, and therefore we invited her to Supper another time, on purpose to detect her. She came, and we before-hand had hung an Apron, a Handkerchief, and a Turn-over, upon the Back of a Chair. The Apron was presently mist; we charged her with taking it: She deny'd it stiffly, and we were resolved to search her. Mr. Hill and I went out of the Room, and left her to my Wife and two more young Women; but first we desired the Prisoner and every one else to look narrowly all over the Parlour, to be satisfied that the Apron was not there; which every one did.</p>
<p>The Woman deposed, that the Prisoner stript herself to her Under-Petticoat; and then told them, that her Modesty would not let her go any farther to expose her Nakedness; but they not being satisfy'd with such a Pretence, she lifted up her Petticoat and Smock together. They still insisted upon having the Petticoat quite off. Then she unty'd it, and in stooping down they perceiv'd her to throw something white under the Table: They took it up, and found it to be the Apron.</p>
<p>The Prisoner in her Defence said, that it was all Spight; and that Trewicks told her he'd make it up, if she'd either give him 30 s. or stand stark naked for a Week together at the seven Dials. She called up several Witnesses to speak in her Behalf, and the Prosecutor produced others against her. The Sum of their Evidence on both sides was, That she was a Gentlewoman of very good Repute, was industrious and careful in the Maintenance of her Family; that she had often been entrusted with Goods and Money to a considerable Value, and always preserv'd her Credit without Blemish: But that she was one of the greatest Lyars in Life, an idle, lazy, cheating, pilfering, drunken Puss; that she had three Husbands; and had in general the worst Character that could be given to a Woman.

<p>The Prisoner thus made her Defence: I met this Man, and he told me if I'd go with him, he'd give me a Pint of Twopenny. Why then, says I, let's go to a House that I know, and so I shew'd him the Way to the Rose and Crown, and there we went up Stairs into a Room by ourselves, and both got drunk together. He bid me Half a Crown to do so and so with me; but I did not much care to let him. Why, indeed, my Dear, (says he) I han't got so much Silver about me; but I'll change a Guinea, and if you are afraid of not having the Money, you shall hold these Headcloaths the while for your own Security; and so he pull'd them out of his Pocket, and gave them me: But finding myself a little in for it, as the Saying is, I did not care for staying any longer, and so I went away without my Half-Crown.

I went to the George Alehouse at the Corner of Mackert's-Court, opposite to the House where the Prisoner lodged. But there being no Room there that commanded the Prisoner's Chamber, I watched the Room of the Oxford Arms, where Davis and his Man were waiting; not doubting, but when they saw an Opportunity of taking the Prisoner, I should see one of them come out, and then I intended to be before-hand with them. But however, Davis's Man stept in before I was aware of him; for the first Suspicion that I had of his being there, was my hearing a Pistol go off; upon which I stept up: I found the Deceased bloody, and the Prisoner walking about in his Wastecoat and Slippers; and perceiving him to have no Weapons in his Hand, I presently arrested him; and in carrying him down Stairs, I met Mr. Davis, who assisted me to get him into the Coach. I asked him how he could kill the Men? and whether his Door was broke open? He said, the Door was not lock'd; but the Deceased coming in without knocking, he took him for a Thief; and if I had been there, he would have serv'd me in the same manner; and ask'd for what he was arrested? I told him for 30 l. To which he answer'd, that he thought it had been for 150 l. and if he had known as much before, he believ'd this had never happen'd. Mr. Moor the Surgeon deposed, that the Deceased had three Wounds; but the only one that he believed mortal, was between the 5th and 6th Rib, and divided the Arteries. The Prisoner then made his Defence.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="172508270004"/> sweeping under the Bed, with my Back to the Door, when I heard a Noise at the Door, and presently it was forced open, (for I had locked it but a few Minutes before.) I turned about, and saw the Deceased in the Room. He asked, if Capt. De le Gall lived there? The Captain ask'd him, what he wanted? The Deceased made no Answer, but stood learning upon his Cane, and looking about the Room. The Captain then told him he believ'd he was a Rogue, and bade him be gone at his Peril; but he not going, the Captain stept back to take up his Sword, and the Deceased ran up with his Cane in his Hand, struck the Captain, and said, G - D - ye, I'll have ye. Then the Deceased closed with him, and threw him down in a Corner of the Room: They got up again; a Pistol lay upon the Chest of Drawers; both of them strove to take it up, and in the Struggle it went off; but did no Harm, except burning the deceased's Shirt. The Captain had his Sword in his Hand, the Deceased ran upon him, collar'd him, dragg'd him to the Door, and endeavour'd to throw him down Stairs; but they both fell, at the Stairs-Head, the Deceased being undermost.</p>
<p>The Prisoner's Son thus deposed: Our Chamber-Door was broke open, the Box of the Lock was almost forced off, and some of the Nails fell into the Room; the Deceased came in and asked for Capt. De le Gall: My Pappa said, What do you want? - Get you gone at your Peril. The Deceased made no Answer, but struck my Pappa with his Cane; my Pappa retreated, and took his Sword off the Table; the Deceased ran upon him, and swore, G - D - me, I'll have you with me; and so he collar'd my Pappa, and threw him down; and seeing a Pistol on the Drawers, the Deceased dragg'd him thither, and endeavour'd to take it up; my Pappa strove to hinder him, and in the Struggle it went off. Then he hauled my Pappa to the Door, and they both fell down together.</p>
<p>Two or three other Witnesses were produced, who gave an Account, that there was a Lock on the Door, and a Bolt in the Lock; but that the Bolt was defective, and therefore the Door was usually kept lock'd; and that the Nails of the Lock were forced out, and found upon the Floor; and that those Nails produced in Court were the same. It appearing to the Jury, that the Deceased was no Officer, that he had no Authority to execute the Process in the Absence of the Officer, that he never did declare or tell the Purpose of his coming, and that he struck and abus'd the Prisoner, they found him

She carry'd me to her Room; I went to Bed, and gave her a Shilling to fetch some Drink. I had 12 s. then left in my Tobacco-Box, which I put under my Pillow. She went out two or three times; there was no persuading her to come to Bed to me, and so I got up again about Two o'Clock in the Morning, and feeling for my Box, it was gone. I charged her with taking it, and sent for a Constable. She deny'd it at first, but afterwards own d that she had it, and that she gave part of it to a Soldier to stand by her. She offer'd me Half a Crown to make it up.</p>
<p>The Prisoner thus made her Defence: The Prosecutor desired me to help him to a Lodging: I brought him to my Landlady's; but she having no Bed to spare, he would go into mine. I desired him to get out; but he said there was Room enough for him and me too: Whereupon I left him, and went and sat at a Neighbour's House, in hopes he would be gone. And so finding that I would not do as he would have me, he got up and charged me with this Fact.

I went up Stairs about Ten o'Clock at Night, made the Door of my Garret fast, and so went to Bed, and soon fell asleep. About Midnight (as I afterward found it was) I was waked by the creaking of my Chest, which stood by the Bed-Side. - Who's there? says I. - No body answer'd. - I jumpt out of Bed, and laid hold of a Man. Who are ye? says I; but not a Word would he speak. - I beat him about as well as I could. He still remain'd Silent, and made no Resistance. I was wondring at it, when, all on a sudden, he cut me across the Face with this Pocket Knife. The Stroke I believed was aim'd at my Throat, but luckily mist it. The Blood ran into my Mouth, and almost strangled me. However, I held him fast, got to the Window, and called the Watch, who quickly came to my Assistance, being let in by some of the Family, whom the Disturbance had by this alarm'd. When the Light came, I was surprized that the Man that had treated me thus, was the Prisoner; for I knew him very well, he having, not long since, been a Fellow-

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="172508270005"/> Man may easily get in. There had been wooden Rails nail'd across; but I can't be sure whether they were broke down that Night as the Prisoner enter'd, or any time before. This, however, I take to be the Place of his Entrance. Then going a cross the Common-Sewer, he comes to the Workhouse, which has two Folding-Doors; and whether these were fasten'd or not, I cannot be certain. The next is the Kitchen-Door; and this has a Light over it almost like the Warehouse Door; at which we presume he enter'd, by the greasy Marks of his Shooes upon the Dresser; and that Grease is another Sign that he came thro' the Warehouse. From the Kitchen he must go up Three Pair of Stairs to the Garret; but how he got in at that Door, I cannot tell.</p>
<p>The Prisoner thus made his Defence: I ask'd Brooks to let me lie with him that Night, and he told me I might if I would. I happen'd to be in Company with some Friends at an Alehouse a pretty way off, and they kept me till Twelve at Night. I came directly from them to Mrs. Fell's, and knock'd at the Door, and Brooks himself came down and let me in. I was got a little in Drink, and some Words passing betwixt us, it occasion'd a Quarrel.</p>
<p>All this was positively contradicted by Brooks; and he continued to assert, that he made his Garret fast about Ten o'Clock, just before he went to Bed, and knew nothing of its being open'd again, till he found the Prisoner at his Chest. To which other Witnesses added, that they saw the Prisoner sauntring about Mr. Fell's House, from the Time her Family went to Bed, till almost Midnight: Besides which, were repeated the Circumstances of his Hat and Wig, and the greasy Marks of a Man's Shooes upon the Dresser.

This made me believe that she did not come honestly by them; and therefore I desired her to go for the rest, but to bring them as privately as she could. In the mean time I sent for a Constable; but White, and the other Prisoner Grey, with a great Bundle of Stockings, were with me before him. In order to detain them till the Constable came, I made them tell over the Stockings, set down the Prices separately, and then cast them up. The Men's he allow'd at 2 s. Boys at 6 d. and Childrens at 3 d. At these Prices they came to 4 l. 16 s. in all. I told them they must abate the odd 16 s. but Grey said he could not afford it. You can if you will, says I. But who do they belong to? Perhaps I may come into Trouble about them. There is no Fear of that, says Grey, the Goods are mine, and I will bear you Harmless. By this time, my Husband and the Constable came in. Grey look'd very shy upon them, and whisper'd me to take the Goods at my own Price, and let him go But we secured them both.</p>
